In 1892, Milton Florsheim began crafting shoes in a small factory in Chicago, Illinois. They were an outstanding combination of style, high quality and comfort. A quality product and strong distribution network found entrepreneurs and self-starters in big cities and small towns of a fast growing nation. A new class of working men and professionals emerged and Florsheim became a symbol of success and personal respect. Florsheim shoes are designed for 'The Man Who Cares.'
